I’m in love with new Clash Royale legendary card. I’ve written to you about our first impression towards Royal Ghost and mentioned some of his ability, uniqueness, pros and cons. And by the end of the article, I promised you to write about Royal Ghost deck. This is it!

Royal Ghost can’t detect one another

In today’s article, we are gonna combine Royal Ghost with Pekka and Miner combo. So, you have required list; Pekka, Miner, and Royal Ghost are irreplaceable. Let’s check out the full deck matchups before we discuss the strategy in depth

Play This Deck

If you experienced Royal Ghost in the challenge, you would agree with me that the ghost is a great matchup for tanker. And in this deck, we have Pekka that we set as heavy tanker for the ghost. Also, Pekka is no.1 damage dealer here that we can play flexibly in counter or defense line.

Next, we have Electro Wizard that we use to support counter with Pekka Ghost and for defense. Having Electro Wizard is important especially if you are in higher arena. You’ll find so many players bring Inferno Tower or Dragon. Electro would perfectly defend the lane against those troops and disengage the burst damage of inferno.

In this deck, we actually have 2 archetypes of countering. First option, we counter with Pekka Royal Ghost Electro. Secondly, we have Miner Poison which play significant role here.

As I said, Miner is irreplaceable because we can have backup counter alternative if Pekka and Royal Ghost couldn’t destroy the tower. Combining him with Poison would really harm the tower HP. You can run Miner Poison if you have survived defender go on counter push. Miner will be the tanker for the counter push and also the priority dealer. Meaning, if you counter push, let say Pekka dies early because the enemy shut her down, we still have Miner that keeps on dealing damage.

Furthermore, we can combine Miner in counter push with Poison. Besides its job as counter support, we can use Poison for defense too.

The defenders

guards card-clash-royale-kingdomelectro_wizard-card-clash-royale-kingdom

Guards is popular defensive card right now since it gets buffed recently. I recommend you to pick Guards if you are in higher arena and level. This card is no.1 defense card that we deploy first before we deploy Electro.

After Guards, we have Electro Wizard and Bats as secondary defenders. In so many battles, Electro is proven to be an excellent support for defense and counter. Its zap ability will stun every single troops of enemy and delivering damage too. Having Electro means that this deck is anti-inferno and anti-sparky.

What to do in early battle?

Now, let’s discuss the counter strategy. In early battle, I recommend you to count on counter push. To do that, we can send solo Miner to bait the enemy deploys any cards. Then, we defend. If you have Guards on the list, you can send three guardians to hold the enemy’s incoming troops.

Or if you fight against troops that have high HP, you can play defensive Pekka. Once you have Pekka in defense, you support the defense line with Zap or Poison or Guards. Try to succeed Pekka in defense because she will lead the counter push next after.


If Pekka still have above half HP, go on counter push

So, in counter push with Pekka, deploy Electro Wizard and Royal Ghost behind her. This is the primary counter strategy guys. Counter push with defensive Pekka and Electro Ghost combo.

Let Pekka be tower’s target and Ghost stays invisible. If the enemy sends any defenders, they would easily die because we have Electro. He will stun and slow down enemy so Pekka and Ghost can reach them and kill’em.


Let Pekka be tower target, and Royal Ghost stays invisible. Awesome!

Once you have this counter line up, don’t send anymore support because you need to back on defense.

What to do in late game?

In late game, we can cycle Miner Poison. You can still run Royal Ghost combo with Pekka too. Still, you start the countering from defending first, then go on counter push.

So, you prioritize Pekka to be in defense line too. Send Electro Wizard afterwards. You don’t deploy Royal Ghost again this time, because we should save elixir for Miner Poison.


Set Pekka as damage receiver first, then deploy Electro

This is how you counter push. It is actually quite similar to counter push in early battle. But we replace Royal Ghost with Miner Poison to create harder and stronger counter push.

Keep in mind that you have Zap. I recommend you to still enclose Zap although we have Electro Wizard. Somehow, we use Electro for defense and we don’t have it in countering with Pekka Ghost or Miner Poison. We can still have zap effect by having Zap that is specifically used to support counter.

This is by far the strongest Royal Ghost with Pekka combo. There are still so many tactics and strategy to be revealed regarding Royal Ghost. Let me know what you guys think about this strategy. And if you play with Royal Ghost, tell me the better or another strategy to win with the ghost.

I hope you enjoy this article guide and may this one helps you to push trophy. See you again soon in next ahead article!

Have fun!
